Errant blogger

You may or may not have noticed that I have been a little erratic in my blogging lately, for that I apologise as I have not been feeling much like blogging, emailing, visiting blogs or generally talking of late.

A lot has been happening here at home, and I felt I should give a little explanation of my errant contact.

After 13 1/2 years together Mark and I have parted, this all happened around 3 weeks ago, I am still living at home (as is Mark, but he will be leaving shortly), we are both still great friends and as much as I am finding it all very confusing, bewildering and mind blowingly numb at the moment I am taking each day as it comes, I have a lot of very loving support from my family and also too from Marks family, and I owe to my sister Helen and my SIL Dawn and my friend Bev extra special loving thanks for all their tolerance and listening to my fears and choices I am about to make with my new life.

I have been stitching and I do have some finishes, stitching as always keeps me sane, I haven't started on ANy of my exchanges as yet as I have no heart in that part of my stitching but I intend to start with them again soon, so I hope not to miss any deadlines, but if I do I apologise.

I hope to feel more inclined to take photos of my finishes later this week, if I do you will all be the first to see them.

I have missed you Su and have wondered the past couple of days if you were OK. I am so sorry to read your news. I am glad that you are still great friends, but even if a situation is not the best, ending it is ending a little part of you, and it will be difficult at times as I'm sure you know. I do hope you have great plans for yourself and your new life brings you much happiness. From what I know you are a very kind and fun person, and also very talented, and you deserve as much in return. I'm only an email away if you ever need me. Hugs being sent your way.

Ооо, I so understand it.... My husband and I were in marriage of 13 years and 5 months. In September at us divorce. Already the second in my life. It is a pity children. It is terrible to begin all with zero. In another's country, without friends and native. I hope, we with children will consult. At you all will be good, Su, necessarily!

I am sorry for errors...

CarolG said...

I am very sorry to hear of your difficult life changes; at least you will maintain a friendship but I'm sure it is scary.

Old Yankee Stitcher said...

That is rough Su, I am sure this will take a long while to work through. Things like exchanges will wait indefinitely, you just take care of yourself. Stitch the things that comfort you and know that your blogging and exchange friends are here to support you. We would love to see the new stitching, but we will keep checking in whether there are new pictures or not. Take care, CJ ok;-)

Julie said...

Thinking of you as you follow this new path in life, i hope all goes well for you.

Dearest Su,

I missed you, too... I didn't know about your situation, I'm so sorry to hear that, it's obvious very pain, I can feel it even I'm here very far away...
I will e-mail you, although I know that you are not in that feeling.

Lizzy said...

I'm so sorry Su! {{{Hugs}}} to you dear one and hoping the pain lessens with each new day as your heart and soul begin the healing journey! It's a long road, and I know mere words bring no comfort just now, however know that you have many friends who love you and are here for you when you need us and in time the pain will bury itself deep in the shadows of your heart, and the sun will shine and you will smile again...

I am sorry to hear this Su! This will take some time for you to process and heal. I know-I went through it 4 years ago. I am not divorced at this point-but finally moving towards that piece. Anyway, don't ever feel you have to rush for anyone and take care of yourself! {{{hugs}}}
